TEHRAN (IQNA) – People, preachers and prayer leaders in Egypt have called on authorities to take steps toward resuming Quranic activities.


In a statement, they urged Awqaf Minister Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa to restart the activities of Quranic schools and centers working under the supervision of the Awqaf Ministry, Egypt Today reported.

They said the ministry should allow these centers to start their operations again in order to promote moderation and Islamic values.

They also prayed that God will save the world from the coronavirus soon.

Quranic activities and many other religious and cultural programs have been suspended in Egypt since March as part of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

More than 32.5 million people have tested positive for the coronavirus worldwide and nearly 990,000 have died from the disease so far.

The number of confirmed cases in Egypt so far is 102,500. The death toll in the North African country is 5,835.
